The GESS Aesthetics Department promotes Gessians’ strong participation and developing of knowledge, skills and attitudes in a diversity of forms of art, music, lifestyles and consumer trends.
In Art, the emphasis on Studio Thinking (Studio Structures & Studio Habits of Mind) aims to make self-directed art learning more effective. Making art using media such as painting (2D), papier-mâché (3D) and photography (digital) exposes students to a variety of artistic means for self-expression.
In Music, students experience singing and playing of msucial instruments in an informal group setting. They also get to enjoy making percussion music with commonplace objects and music videos with jingles.
In Nutrition and Food Science, besides learning the science behind food reactions and nutritional values, students discover the impact of diet and health on a person’s well-being. Their understanding of food manufacturing will enhanced through Learning Journeys to food manufacturing factories.
